The PKN Women in Packaging Awards celebrate leadership excellence in the Australian packaging industry. This well-deserved recognition is testament to Ellie’s hard work and dedication over the past few years.

The Manufacturing Leader Award recognises women who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and excellence in Australian packaging manufacturing. It honours achievements such as optimising production processes, improving quality control, enhancing efficiency, and fostering a culture of innovation and safety.

It’s fantastic to win and be acknowledged – I’m a little bit bashful about it to be honest. It really reflects the work the whole team does at Gawler across the entire site and I’m proud to be able to represent them. It’s also a privilege to win in such a competitive field filled with some really talented people. Thanks to PKN for a great event and initiative and thanks to my team and Orora!” – Ellie King
